Game notes: On paper this match looks pretty one-sided, but since coming back from the bye a month ago, the Brisbane Lions have been more than feisty and should give the Cats a test. Chris Fagan’s men have won two of their past four matches – including Sunday’s incredible last quarter revival to down Essendon – and shown good signs in losses to Port Adelaide and GWS. Dayne Zorko and Tom Rockliff have been prolific in the midfield, while the Lions’ young talent, led by Eric Hipwood, Harris Andrews and Hugh McCluggage, has added some class and excitement. Geelong is coming off a draw to the Giants and spent the week on the Gold Coast rather than returning to Victoria. They will likely have too many weapons, but don’t be shocked if the Lions give some cheek.
Father Dougal’s Tip: Geelong by 10
